  • Roger Ingham is Professor of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
  • He was born in Australia and received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. in psychology (1972) from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
  • In 1982 he was awarded the Order of Australia for contributions to Speech-Language Pathology higher education in Australia.
  • He has published 3 books and more than 200 papers, principally on developmental stuttering and is one of the most cited researchers investigating this disorder.
  • His research has focused on the development and evaluation of stuttering treatments, the measurement of stuttering, and the neurology of stuttering.
  • In 2005 he was awarded the Honors of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Journal of Speech, Language and Hearing Research Editor’s Award.
  • He is the recipient of several federally funded research grants for investigating stuttering treatment and the neurology of stuttering.
  • In collaboration with Drs. Peter Fox at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and Janis Costello Ingham, he developed a program of research on developmental stuttering using brain imaging techniques including PET, event-related fMRI, MEG and transcranial magnetic stimulation.
  • Currently he is the PI for an NIH grant investigating the interaction between neural systems change and stuttering therapy. He is also collaborating with Dr. Scott Grafton at UC Santa Barbara with continuing projects associated with that grant.
